Venice 2011: Yoan Capote, Cuban Pavilion



Curator, critic, and AIR correspondent Julia Draganovic stops by the Cuban Pavilion at the 2011 Venice Biennale to talk with Yoan Capote about his work, Trees With Feet, a meditation on the nature of roots and their ability to both ground us and force us out into the world, as the roots of a tree both provide stability and nourishment, but also require that it leave the protected earth.

RADIO SERIES

A series of talk and musical programs assembled from our various trips to Venice for the Biennale dating back to 2005. The programs range from round table discussions to interviews to DJ sets to virtual pavilions rendered in music and sound. On two occasions (2005 and 2007) we broadcast live on Italian FM radio from a boat moored near the Giardini. In 2011 our roving reporters covered the scene while the interview booth was headquartered near Piazzo San Marco. We also partnered with artist Federico Diaz and his sculpture-building robots at the Arsenale to design a special series called Robot Radio. 2013 brought us together with LaRete Art Projects and the Venice Agendas series produced by workinprogress for interviews and discussions.
